It may look like a blender, but the super intelligent RP-7 robot is actually a virtual doctor that can be on-call 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The RP-7 virtual doctor currently lives at the Ryder Trauma Center at the University of Miami/Jackson Medical Center in Florida.

The Wi-Fi-enabled virtual doctor roams the trauma center wards allowing on-site staff to communicate with those who are currently off-duty. The 5-foot tall RP-7 has a monitor mounted on top to add a further layer of connectivity.
